Paul Hautefeuille (circa 1890)


French mineralogist and chemist largely remembered for his work involving mineralogical syntheses, being credited with laboratory reproduction of quartz, tridymite, zircon, beryl, mica, alumina and many other minerals. He determined the temperatures at which minerals dissociate as well as the temperature at which they will crystallize into a particular crystal system. He also conducted research on the oxides of nitrogen.

He died on 8 December 1902 in Paris, aged 66.
